THE grief-stricken mother of murdered fruit picker Ranjodh Singh has arrived in Griffith as the fight to bring her son's killer to justice continues.
Speaking to The Area News through an interpreter last week, Parmjit Kaur said her family would "never sleep" until those responsible for her son's horrific murder were locked up.
"Why can't they re-open the case? They missed so many important points," Mrs Kaur said.
"I cry every day about this. We need help to get justice."
Ranjodh Singh was stabbed repeatedly, had his face burned and his body dumped on a Willbriggie roadside on December 29, 2009.
Harvest labour contractor Harpreet "Simpy" Singh and husband and wife Gurpreet and Harpreet Singh were charged with murder but the couple had their charges downgraded to accessory to murder after a deal was struck to testify against their co-accused.
Despite a Supreme Court jury accepting "Simpy" Singh was at the scene of the murder, he was controversially acquitted because the jury could not be convinced he acted alone.
"Why can't 'Simpy' be charged with something else?" Mrs Kaur said.
"He was present when my boy was killed yet he has walked free."
Under recently changed NSW double jeopardy laws, Singh could again be tried for murder but only if "fresh and compelling" new evidence was tendered.
Ranjodh Singh's aunty Sarita Sarita criticised the Griffith Indian community for not supporting the family in their hour of need.
"They've never come to see me, they've never asked if I needed help; they just don't want to get involved," Mrs Sarita said.
"There are people in the local Indian community that know more. They could go to police with new evidence but they choose not to."
But local Sikh Temple committee member Ajwinder Singh said the community had never been formally approached by the family for support.
"If somebody needs help in our community, we will always do what we can to help them," Mr Singh said.
Griffith Police crime manager Detective Inspector Paul Smith said the local investigation into the murder was "officially closed".
